  • Add tomatoes, lentils, stock and give a good stir
  • Add all other ingredients and salt and pepper to taste
  • Bring to boil stirring so that the lentils don't stick to the bottom. After about 10 minutes bubbling turn down heat to low and simmer for around 1 hour or until lentils are tender
  • Once ready you can serve with homemade bread as a chunky hearty winter soup or blitz to make a really fine soup.
  • My daughter loves this soup and calls it 'her tomato soup' Enjoy
